"Rand McNally Road Atlas The 2012 ""Rand McNally Road Atlas"" contains all-new Best of the Road trips featuring best attractions, shops, and meals. Road construction projects have been updated and are conveniently located directly above each state map. "
Hab ihn immer dabei, sieht nach jedem Urlaub aus, als wäre er einmal mitgewaschen worden :)! Das Format mag für "Neulinge" ungewöhnlich sein, aber wer einen Road Trip machen will, und nicht vom NAVI blind und langweilig geführt werden will, für den ist der Rand McNally der Tip! Und anschliessend sicher sehr vertraut und geschätzt!
Mir hilft das Format übrigens super, eine Tagesplanung zu machen, und da man in Amerika ganz schnell in die Verlegenheit kommt, weit zu cruisen, ist es imemr ratsam, so einen "Komplett-Atlas" dabei zu haben.

Some folks may wonder whether an atlas is necessary alongside a GPS. Absolutely, it is. Nothing beats having the ability to see a large area in high detail, and to be able to consider last-minute changes and detours along a route, which are essentially impossible with a GPS.
While I'm driving, my wife routinely looks at the atlas to consider other routes, to find out what mountains are off in the distance, where a certain road goes, how far is it to some other place off the main path, and so forth -- a lot of entertainment and learning in addition to the basic map functions.
In summary: if you don't have a road atlas and need a national atlas, get this one. If you have one more than a couple of years old, strongly consider it. (And BTW, you might also want to consider "The Next Exit" book, which I just tried and will review soon.)
But what I really like is using this as a tool for planning trips or for simply imagining trips. Since I was a kid, I enjoyed picking up the atlas and thinking: "How would I get to ---?" It was great fun to trace out a route to places all over my home state (Illinois) or the country.
I use MapQuest, but I still prefer mapping out drives with my trusty Rand McNally Atlas if the trip is pretty straightforward.
I live in Pennsylvania now. I use the annual update to figure out how to get from, say, Hershey to Myerstown. The mileage indicators are helpful to figure out the time between different places.
In this high tech era, it might seem quaint to enjoy the use of an old-fashioned atlas. But Rand McNally has kept up and has support mechanisms--such as its web site.
Anyhow, I'm still a fan after too many decades of this estimable resource!
The Rand McNally Road Atlas is a great roadbook, just get in the car and drive!
Big maps with driving distances and driving time, with detailed parts of cities. One of the best things are the scenic routes, highlighted with little green dots so you know the prettiest roads to drive.
I've chosen this one and not the one with extra cover, because the next time I'll use it, there's going to be an new version, so it wasn't necessary for me. Just a great roadbook.
As mentioned by several others, there is a bit of an issue with the vinyl covered edition. The cover can become torn and/or separated due to the thin paper and stapled binding in combination with the cover being tucked into the vinyl pockets on both sides. A haphazard toss of the atlas one day caused the entire book to separate from the cover on my copy. However, I found that by placing a rubberband in the center of the binding holds it all together perfectly.
We have since purchased newer copies and put a rubberband around them immediately. We have never had a problem with tearing or separation since. Hope this helps everyone!
